„What I like the most is that I help people who need it and that I leave with a positive feeling and a lot of energy. I particularly like the fact that I enjoy the work and that thanks to the tutoring, I also learn many new things thanks to the tutoring.“

„Since the very beginning of our cooperation, META has offered me the best facilities, professional service and support for my work with the client. I especially appreciate the quick and very constructive solving of problems, appreciation of my work, and quick and effective communication. With META´s support I understood the limits and possibilities of volunteer work has, and its purpose. Now I know that even when working with a complicated client, I can always ask for help and change, and at the same time, the organization offers the client sufficient and necessary service without me being responsible. I am looking forward to further tutoring, no matter whom.“ Anežka
